Free Income Tax Assistance Offered at FVCC

In partnership with Community Action Partnership, Flathead Valley Community College will provide free tax preparation to Northwest Montana residents who earned $53,000 or less through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program from February 6 through April 11.


Taxes are prepared by Flathead area volunteers who have trained to become Internal Revenue Service certified tax preparers. Tax preparations are being conducted on a walk-in basis Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in room 236 inside the Arts &Technology building on the FVCC campus. Electronic filing and secure direct deposit services are available.


Community members are asked to provide W-2s, 1099s, 1098s or other forms; Social Security cards or Taxpayer Identification Numbers for all family members or dependents being claimed; 1095-A if a tax credit from the marketplace was received; last year’s tax returns; bank routing and account numbers; childcare provider’s name, address and tax identification number, if applicable; and a valid email address.
